My Favorite Home Gadgets on Amazon.
I purchased the Instant pot on last year’s Prime day, i tell you, i am glad i did. It is such a time saver during busy school evenings. You can make everything from chicken wings, pork ribs, pulled pork, rice, soup, broth, yogurt, you name it.
I bought this Kenwood kitchen machine after a recommendation from a co-worker. She said her machine had broken down after using it for 35 years, that is right 35 years.
I have had it for 2 years now, no issues at all. We use it at least once a week.
Favorite Self Development Books
Four years ago, I subscribed to audible books free with prime membership, i switched to reading self development books. They have helped me become a better person. I have better relationships with the people around me, I regret not starting earlier on the self development journey.
I started growing my library, something i am very proud of. It is never too late, to start reading books. Here are few books that transformed my life.
This book is hand down the best self development book i have ever read. It teaches you ways to shift your thinking and take emotional inventory . How to understand and embrace your core self. Many of us purchase material stuff to make us happy, but the truth is happiness comes from your core, the only place you can control.
The Compound Effect is centered around the premise of slow and steady wins the race. The author goes in detail to show us examples of the small things we do or neglect that have a pro-founding effect on out relationships, finances and health. This book is a must read for anyone yearning to change the state of their lives.
Jack Canfield shows you the specific success principles for breaking through and achieving success in your relationships, work, and health.
The necessary steps you need to change negative patterns keeping you from achieving your goals.
Like Jack Canfield says, you have control over your thoughts, the images you visualize and the actions you take. The Success Principles will help pave the way to achieving true and sustainable success.
This book is a must read, if you are looking to improve your communication with your family members, if you work in sales, management, communicating with your children etc.
You will need to make some notes. Keep going back to your notes as it is not a one time read type of book.
I bought this this book after i stumbled on Dr. Jordan Peterson’s psychology lectures on Youtube.
He teaches young men and women how to take individual responsibility and get their lives together.
He enhances the ability to advise the youths and has got me to rethink my approach to my own life. I wished he was around when I was growing up.
The Richest Man in Babylon taught me the concept of paying yourself first. I had never heard of it before. It amazes how the money accumulates from paying yourself first.
In my humble opinion, i think it should be on every school’s reading list, to teach our children about finances.
Think and Grow Rich is one of the best books I have ever read. There is so much insight and wisdom, you need patience to understand it.
Failure is a necessary part of our learning process, it gets us closer to your goal, if you persist.
You need to burn all the bridges that are holding you back, so you can achieve your goals. He sums it up this way: You can have either excuses or results, but NOT both.
Jim Rohn is considered as the major pioneer in the self development world. His book The Seasons of Life taught me about dealing with life’s ups and downs.
We can not change the seasons, instead we deal with the cards we are dealt.
It is about determination, complaining never got anyone anywhere. Almost everyone out there faces some kind of turmoil, it is all about how you set your sail.
I have almost all Jim Rohn’s books, i keep going back to them, for more inspiration. Farm boy from Idaho, made it big in Beverly Hills.
There are many good self development books out there. I can not go through all of them.
